Mary SHORTING was possibly the Mary baptised 2 Dec 1748 in Holt, Norfolk, the daughter of James and Mary Shorting. There is, however, a burial noted for a Mary, 09 Apr 1758, although it does not state if an age or 'daughter of…' to confirm if a child. As an argument for this being the correct Mary, James & Mary had a daughter Diana, a name given to one of Henry & Mary Peck's daughters… this name not having been used within the Peck family before this time.
Mary died in child birth, and was buried 8 May 1783 in Hunworth.
She married Henry Peck 28 Oct 1778 in Sharrington, Norfolk.
